    I'll try and find them on Ebay. The problem I had was that the first bulbs I bought were too 'Fat' at the LED top to fit into the existing socket but I found some that just went in.. I bought them to reduce the wattage when I put the caravan onto the cobra as it kept on blowing the fuse when putting the brakes on.. The much lower wattage of the LED's solved that.
    The other problem was that I have the Flat lenses on my cob and not the Beehive style lenses.
    Im still trying to find them on Ebay but what you should ensure is you get the LED bulbs with the 2 terminals on the bottom of the bulb.
    Just buy some and try them theyre pretty cheap. I'll post a link here if I find the ones I used but there are others on Ebay.

    I fitted these to my car, easy swap and a lot cheaper. Really bright as nearly all the other LED conversions I have seen are really dull IMHO

    Just the sort of thing I'm looking to fit as I'm having clear lenses all-round. Is there any additional wiring involved with fitting LED's, relays, resistors etc or are they plug and play?

    I have tried these but have found that the bayonet part is separate to the bulb part and rotates so that when you insert the bulb into the holder and push and turn to engage the bayonet fitting all that happens is that the bulb part rotates in your fingers so not possible to engage the bayonet. Lesson learned and now looking at the LED boards.

    Just fitted these, the only problem was the soldered contacts were too proud and needed filing down to enable the bayonet to engage, much brighter sides and brake.

    Presumably this type of led bulb isn’t suitable for the indicators?

    He’s got a combination brake light and indicator - not sure if he does indicator alone - he needs a better website. It’s not quite as simple as a brake light swap, some indicator circuits need resistance.

    Thanks. Seems to confirm not a simple replacement for indicator bulbs..but not difficult.
